Reef heron, Kohimarama, Auckland

Pleasant surprise this afternoon to see a reef heron stalking at the waters edge, and on the rocky platform near the yacht club at Kohimarama. It was having some success too. On the same platform were 4 VOCs, little shag, RB gulls, B backed gulls, 2 caspian terns, WF heron, kingfishers, mynas and a starling. Quite the lineup!

What do you think of that 'Wellington City Biodiversity' thread?!

Thanks for the heads up, Nakilad, I will have to continue to keep my eye out for them. I could have sworn I saw one whilst cycling on the Northwestern Cycle way yesterday.
